Merry Christmas

By December 25, 2005General

Just wanted to wish all of you a Merry Christmas. In the background at this moment are the strains of James Galway’s rendition of “Silent Night” — as perfect a song as has ever been written. We just wanted to remind you all, weary from the crush of shopping, wrapping, card-sending and well-wishing why we began down this path. Recall that it began in a manger in Bethlehem a little over 2000 years ago. We hope you’ll take time to remember at this most holy season.

As this is the official end of Thank a Soldier Week, we hope you’ll also remember our military families deployed all over the world — some in harm’s way, some not, but all are away from home. Do drop them a note and thank them for their sacrifice. Remember to thank them all year long.

And finally, we also hope you’ll remember the great contribution of manufacturers to our Nation. We will take our day off from making stuff and start right back tomorrow. Do take a minute today to look around you at all the stuff we make and at the enormous prosperity manufacturing provides to this great country, and be thankful.

Merry Christmas.
